Sterling silver hoop earrings – made of tubes and wires
Classic hoop earrings most often are made of a tube. On one side, they are finished with a wire, which, after bending the rim, is put through the hole in the ear, and then inserted into the tube on the other side, thus fastening the jewellery. This is a simple way to secure the item and is almost invisible, thanks to which the earring forms a perfect circle. Hoops captivate with their simplicity and universality, and at the same time decorativeness, through which they expose the beauty of feminine beauty and complement any stylisation.
In our assortment, we present sterling silver hoops with a diameter of several millimeters to ten centimeters, in a wide range of thicknesses. Despite the fact, that these jewellery supplies are finished products, they are in the category of earring bases because they suit for composing more sophisticated projects, such as beading hoops or hoop earrings with charms. It is among these models that you will find large silver hoop earrings.
Wire hoop earrings are similar in their simplicity to the classic hoops. The difference between them is that wire loops are made of wire instead of tube, and their clasp is formed into a hook in which the other end of the earring is blocked. Thin silver hoop earrings are often used for simple affordable jewellery, beading and creating fan-shaped decorations.
Thick hoop earrings
Jewellery is so rich in forms that the same patterns can be presented in different versions. The same goes for hoop earrings. The 925CRAFT assortment also includes thick circle earrings in the round and flat form. We offer these earring findings in two types: full thick hoops with a round cross-section, and profiled – made of silver sheet.
Silver hoops made of sheet have a semi-circular surface from the outside, and from the inside they have a groove into which a fastening wire is inserted. Flat hoops are also made of metal sheet, but they differ from them in that they have a flat outer surface.
Silver and gold hoop earrings made of tubes are round in their entire cross-section and equipped with a more complex type of fastening – a snap. Fastening them consists in the fact that a piece of wire, which is mounted on a hinge, snaps onto the part fixed on the other side of the earring.
Large silver hoops are usually worn alone, but those with a round cross-section can also be successfully treated as jewellery making supplies for making charm earrings. For this kind of projects, you need to use larger jumprings.
Thick hoops look impressive, creating a noticeable ear jewelry design. Larger earring components also allow for a richer play of light, and thus intensify the gloss, which can be given an additional colour tone if you suit the proper galvanic coating.
